There are many do’s and don’ts that can really help you when you are playing lottery. But, you’d be surprised how many people don’t bother looking into advice (and let alone tactics), so reading this article will already be giving you an enormous advantage. And in this game of odds, an advantage is exactly what you need.
A lot of tips on the internet will give you a vague idea of what you need to do to increase your chances of winning when playing lottery. But, we’ve decided to really simplify it for you, and list the things you should NEVER do if you are planning to win (or when you finally do win it).
Playing Lottery The Right Way
Never change your numbers
There are many theories on this one, but let’s be clear: once you finally choose your numbers, it isn’t very smart to change them. Just think about it: with every new draw that your numbers aren’t drawn, you are basically increasing your chances of winning. Also, haven’t you heard those terrible stories about people who’ve decided to change their numbers, and that was exactly when their numbers were finally drawn? You don’t want to be one of those people.
Never misplace the ticket
Well, this one may be kind of obvious and self-explanatory, but you’d be surprised how many people have lost their winnings just because they weren’t paying attention. So firstly, double-check your ticket to make sure if it is or isn’t a winning one; don’t be quick to throw it away. An additional tip is to sign the ticket first thing after you buy it: sometimes that can help you claim it, even if you do lose it. Secondly, once you finally win, make a conscious effort to store it somewhere safe, but frequent. That way you may stumble upon it even if you do forget where you’d put it.
Never boast about your winnings
We understand you’d like to share your happiness of winning with the world, but suppress that urge. You don’t want every long lost relative and acquaintance suddenly remembering your phone number or showing up at your doorstep. Don’t get us wrong, you should by all means share your winnings if you feel like it, but it will be much easier if you do it under your own terms, without the whole world on your back.
Never quit your job right away
This is one other rash decision you should leave for when your head is a bit clearer. We don’t say you should or shouldn’t quit your job, we are just suggesting you shouldn’t do it hot-headed. Be sure to double-check if you’ve even won, then be sure you collect your winnings, then be sure you talk to someone who knows more about finances than you, and by then you can decide if you want to quit your job or not.
Never forget to ask for financial advice
If you had never had the opportunity of dealing with large amounts of money, it’s probably fair to say there are people who know more about it than you. It shouldn’t be beneath you to ask for help: if you have someone in your immediate circle who can advise you on how to handle and invest big sums of money, that’s your person. If you don’t, your first step after winning should be hiring a financial adviser. You’ll thank us later.
Never stop playing
Last but not least, you should always be playing the lottery, and never give up. That way you are increasing your chances of winning, and can one day finally employ all of the advice we’ve just listed. Happy playing!
